3. Find the length of arc S, if r= 10 and its like a 0 with a line in the middle = pie over 6.

Unless I'm mistaken, this seems like pretty elementary geometry.


Just use area of the sector for A is:


[math]A = \frac{x}{2 \pi} r^2 [/math]


where [math]x[/math] is in radians. Maybe some Pythagoras but as some other people posted, it's not very difficult I think.


Ha.. I love pie and pi. :D
